    It looks like it's a 7.5cm PAK 40 barrel.

    Looks like it has been found in a swamp, or very wet enviroment.

    This is a piece of "gold" for the right museum- or advanced panzer collector.

    Edit: Yes i think the same as Ned.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    It came off of one of These guys. A German 7.5 cm Pak 40 Anti-tank gun. A Hugely used towed weapon. A shame the rest of it wasn't still with it!
